Should be getting East for local news but getting London
Then the likelyhood is your area is connected to a London cable Headend. If you are in Beds, N. Herts or Bucks this will be the case, & you need to use the following alternatives for regional TV :
BBC1 East (Cambridge sub-region) : Channel 858
ITV Anglia West : Channel 870
Unfortunately ITV HD (113) is still fed from London. But 98% of HD material on ITV HD is networked anyway.
